Lurgan Blues chairman leaves NIFL post

By Graham Luney

Glenavon chairman Adrian Teer has confirmed he is retiring as chair and member of the Northern Ireland Football League Board after five years service.

Teer is also retiring as Glenavon's representative on the Premiership Management Committee.

He was one of three representatives nominated by the PMC to sit on the eight person NIFL Board.

"It was my intention to step down from NIFL two years ago and again last season but was persuaded to remain," Teer told the Glenavon website. "It is quite a demanding role especially on top of a club chairmanship. To my mind, the chair of the NIFL Board should serve a maximum period, arguably three years but an absolute maximum of five. It has been an honour for Glenavon to have had someone as chair of the NIFL Board and I've thoroughly enjoyed the experience."

Glenavon's representative on the Premiership Management Committee for 2018/19 is expected to be selected at a board meeting later this week.

Lurgan Blues boss Gary Hamilton has confirmed Andy McGrory has left the club for Ballymena United after turning down the offer of a further four-year contract plus a testimonial.

"At the age of 27, however, he decided to move on in the hope of guaranteed first team football," said Hamilton.
